Joining forces, hip-hop duo Atmosphere and sunny reggae band Iration will take to the stage across the United States for their Sunshine & Summer Nights Tour. They will be supported by Katastro, who mixes elements of alternative rock and hip-hop, and rapper and producer The Grouch with DJ Fresh. Tickets are available for purchase now, with presale beginning April 13, 2022 and public sale beginning April 15, 2022.
During the walk, Atmosphere and Iration will also make pit stops to join the festival lineup, including San Diego Bayfest in Sandiego, Calif. on July 9, 2022 and Reggae Rise Up Maryland in Baltimore on July 30, 2022. .
Both Atmosphere and Iration are on tour in support of recently released albums. Atmosphere, consisting of rapper Slug and DJ and producer Ant, is releasing WORD? in October 2021, which received high praise. The album includes songs such as “Woes”, “Sleepless” with Nino Bless and “Barcade” with Aesop Rock and MF DOOM. In the run-up to the summer tour, Atmosphere celebrated the 20th anniversary of their second album Lucy Fordwhich features songs like “Guns and Cigarettes” and “The Woman with the Tattooed Hands”.
Iration released their latest album Rub shoulders in June 2020. According to mxdwn writer Liam Thropp, Rub shoulders “is truly a melting pot of what this band is capable of” and shows fans the “malleable nature of the reggae genre and Iration’s love for his own music”.
The two headliners expressed their excitement about going on tour together and their supporting acts. Atmosphere’s Slug said, “We can’t wait to race this summer to party with the people…I need to hear the sounds of smiles and smell the food of the sun. Going on the road with Iration is a blessing. They are pros at partying. We will bathe in the atmosphere.
Iration shared the same enthusiasm for the musical medley they will create together alongside supporters Katastro and The Ground with DJ Fresh. Vocalist and guitarist Micah Pueschel said, “We’re incredibly excited to be releasing this summer alongside Atmosphere… They’re a band we’ve loved and listened to since our first tour. We also have Katastro and The Grouch joining us, who are great artists who will make the show a radical and diverse mix of sounds.
Tickets for their stops on the tour are available here with the option of VIP packages, which include a meet and greet, pin set and poster among other goodies.
